What interested me most about Simmons, and ultimately why I came here, was Studio 5.
No other program had any such opportunity and it certainly lived up to my expectations.
I had a wonderful experience with Studio 5 and still highlight my experiences on my resume!"
— Caitlin O'Connor, class of 2005
